Fishermans Bend will be home to a new jobs precinct, with expanded plans for the development and doubling the size of the urban renewal area.

fburamapThe Victorian Government has announced details of the recast and improved Fishermans Bend precinct.

The recast will see the urban renewal area of Fishermans Bend almost double in size with a large new jobs-creating employment precinct in addition to Fishermans Bend’s four distinct neighbourhoods.

The recast of Fishermans Bend will aim to deliver much needed clarity, certainty and reassurance to surrounding communities and industry, and protect Fishermans Bend from over development while ensuring the provision for community infrastructure such as school and services that reflect best practice urban renewal.

Community engagement and new governance arrangements will be in place by the middle of the year, with strategic planning expected to be completed by the first quarter of 2016. Formal exhibition of the recast precinct is planned for the second half of 2016.
